My Tower o' Babel

The renovations on my office house that have been going on since last June are finally almost complete, and I've started moving my stuff in at last.

Two stories plus a basement (a big deal in Santa Fe, no one has basements here). The basement is just a basement, with a laundry, a furnace, and a wine cellar. The second story is for my library... books by other people.

The first floor, though, that combines my brag library -- the many and various editions of my own books -- with lighted glassed-in barrister shelves for my toy soldiers and miniatures.




The displays are mostly in chaos as yet, but I'm looking forward to filling them up with an endless series of eye-popping dioramas.

And the bookshelves... well, I'll just have to write some books to fill those.

Woo hoo for you
I'm glad it's all done.

I promised that we'd hold a end-of-class party for a 12-week communiversity class we'd all been taking and now I have a habitable living room. And the rest of the downstairs (public area) is not that far from being habitable.

I'm a lot happier about my home now.l

Wow, huge difference from the poky shelves and soldiers and accessories jumbled together. Looks fabulous!

I love how you did not just placed the figurines for ordinary display, but staged some battles between them. Looks great!

Swanky kit - makes my mother's wall-to-wall shelf in the living room (the one wall she could afford to have done) look like peanuts.

And I don't know why, but I have to say I'm digging the tiny tourney off on the right... actually, it's almost if you put the bottom row of cases together, and you've got castle + audience + combatants... not a hard mental image to wedge together!
